My vegan toddler is 18 months old, and these are three of their favourite books. The books are not scary or graphic. They help Baby feel that they have a lot in common with animals, and imagine what it is like to live someone else's life. The books are: That's Not My Momma's Milk by Julia Barcalow and Kayleigh Castle, Just Like Me! by Stanley Foo, and Animal Rescue by Patrick George.
